Flourishing Phrases


I had a wee play with my Flourishing Phrases 1 using  the
flower and sentiment stamps along with Real Red Classic Stampin' Pad
I stamped one flower out and 3 sets of the leaves in a well inked red and then
I shadow stamped along the edge of the card to get the nice pale pink.
Flower and leaves with cut and adhered to card with an added pearl for good measure.
I stamped the little 'Just a note' in same red ink.
I love the look of the flower and leaves in this gorgeous colour.
The ink pad is lovely and juicy!
I have 4 new colours arriving this week so watch this space as I think this lovely flower
deserves a few more outings.

I would like to enter this into:

Sentimental Rose

How's everyone today?
I am here to share a sympathy card I made for  Tutti Designs using this beautiful


Sadly this type of occasion is one that hits us all at sometime.


I only used lilac card with the white to keep it soft and simple.
Cut the Rose frame in white card and emboss. As it is an intricate frame be sure and run it
through your cutting machine a few times, or add an extra shim, for best results.


Then using sticky dots I adhered to a piece of lilac card and trimmed to fit white rose frame.
Keep the white centre from the die cut to stamp your sentiment.


Trim a piece of lilac card and run through with chosen embossing folder.
I went with roses to match the Rose Frame.


I added a piece of vintage lace to tie in with the soft look.


Next I stamped my chosen sentiment in the off cut from the Rose Frame.
Be sure to have the off cut facing right way as it fits in nicely then.


I stuck this in centre of frame. Added 3d foam to back and adhered to my card.
Now it's time to make the flowers.


Using Scalloped Stitched Nesting Circles I cut
4 circles for centre flower and 3 for two smaller flowers.
Hold these in place with a brad. Doesn't matter if not the same as
I will be covering them later.

Spray the flowers with water and scrunch up. Then dry off with heat tool.


Gently re-open the flowers, drying again if necessary.
Add a punched lilac circle and adhere to centre.
Add to your card and finish with a nice bow.




Thanks for dropping by, I hope you like my card!


For my card I used:
Lilac card, rose embossing folder, circle punch, lace, organza ribbon
Satin paper for flowers
Stamp is from Our Daily Bread

Lily heart


Today I am sharing a little gift box I made using the fabulous



This is the front view of box


and this is back view. I am popping in some little biscuits and a teabag!


With Spring in mind, I chose a nice bright yellow card stock for my box
(though you would never know from my photos lol)
measuring 11 inches x 8 inches.
Using my large score board I scored the card at
1 inch, 5.25 inches, 6.5 inches and 10.5 inches
Then turn your card and score at
1 inch, 6.5 inches and 7.5 inches.


Burnish all the folds and cut away the parts shown in the photo and cut up the lower slits
to form the shape of the box.
Add glue to small flap at right and fold other side over to join and form the box.

Leave flat at this stage.


Cut the lily rose panel die in a different colour (I went with green) and emboss.
Adhere to the front panel of your box using sticky dots or wet glue.


and then stamp your sentiment in middle of rose



I used a circle punch to create an easy opening at the back of box.
I measured a piece of co-ordinating ribbon, formed my box and tied ribbon in place.


I then cut a larger green square and smaller square in stamping card using



I stamped image and sentiment (coloured with promarkers) and layered the squares
with 3d foam and adhered to back panel of my box
which helps to hold ribbon in place.
Fill the box with goodies of your choice.




For my box I used


I also used:
yellow and green card stock
Stamps - Marian Emberson Designs Birds and trees
Medium - promarkers

Love chocolate!





I made a couple of little chocolate bar wraps for my two little Grandsons
for Valentine's Day.
They aren't allowed too much chocolate so thought this little bar would be perfect.
I used a stamp set I have had for years but rarely gets used!!

For my gifts I used:
red card stock
tutti circle die
Neenah stamping card
memento tuxedo black ink, red distress ink
Penny Black every which way stamp
Sentiment stamp unbranded
Flower and heart punches
red gems
coloured with promarkers

I cut the card stock 11.5 inches x 2 inches
I creased it at 3/4'' mark, then 5'', then 51/4'' on my score board.

I put a thin line of 3d foam along the first fold, creased and stuck.


I put a few sticky dots to secure the chocolate bar and put in place
It's now ready to decorate!

Snow has decided to visit us yet again. Honestly this is getting mad.
I can't remember ever having this much snow so early in the year.
Keep warm people!
